Having seen the creature with my own two eyes, I am, as you may imagine, inclined to the "fact" side of the question.
My sighting, and thoughts on it.
Some of you are going to think... He got hoaxed. Or he's delusional. Or both. I know only what I saw, and the effect it had on me emotionally.
It scared the whey out of me, not to put too fine a point on it. As I said in my thread, I went from a, supposedly, sophisticated modern human to a
cave dwelling hunter-gatherer fearing what may live and move in the dark beyond the flickering light of my campfire. The modern sophisticate is, by
all appearances, only skin-deep apparently.
I can't speak for others, but I have gone from a border line skeptic who wanted to believe, to an ardent believer. All it took was a short eye to
eye contact over the space of twenty/thirty seconds to alter my perceptions of the world around me. I always suspected it was stranger than we knew,
or want to know...now I know it is
stranger than we know, or may want to know.
One of the more profound effects this has had on me, is that when I'm out and about in the hills above town, I don't quite trust the quiet of the
woods anymore... ...and truth to tell? I don't much like that sensation.
